Another Thinking Out Loud Thursday – linking up with Amanda at Running with Spoons.
#1 Lack of Posts
Sorry for the lack of posts lately. I actually have a number of posts that I would like to write, but just don’t have the time. Marathon training and track and field coaching is eating up all my available time. Plus, work has been a bit busy. It is report card season and my yearbook was due, so in between all this athletic stuff, I actually had to do my job as well. The yearbook is now completed and report cards will be done shortly. I feel like I should also start a countdown to taper time. It is coming soon!
#2 Self-Hosted for 4 years?!?
Some people know when their “blogiversary’ date – Apparently I do not. I knew it was in April, but had no idea that on April 6 2012, I moved my wordpress site to a self-hosted one. Four years of this blog being all official-like. I’ve been blogging for far longer, but self-hosted is a bit of a different environment. I’ve had many great experiences that are related to this blog but also have met some really great people.
#3 Speaking of being busy and whatnot
There are days that I feel that it would just be easier to simply run the half marathon at Ottawa Race Weekend. I am just about ready for a half marathon and could probably get a really decent race in. But, with every run I do (especially long runs) I just think that I only have a few more to do, then taper time. I am long running after work today and the weather is looking great. That should hopefully help with my running-mode. But still, I keep thinking that maybe I should switch.
#4 Stop the Sugar
I’ve been eating far too many sugar treats lately. Whether it is chocolate or pie, lots of sugar. I bought a banana cream pie the other day and I’m pretty sure that other than one slice, I ate the entire thing myself. The closer we get to race day, the more I realize I need to stop eating so much sugar. But why does pie have to taste so delicious?
#5 Bathroom is almost done!
We should be able to finish up the ensuite bathroom this weekend. The only thing that we are completely stuck on is the sill for the shower. The stone that is needed to fill in that section is ridiculously expensive – with the cheapest option being more than the tile/vanity cost. I think the bathroom is looking great and way better than how it used to look. We also might get more flooring done this weekend.
That is all I have time for today! Have a great Thursday!!!
